Dreams and Nightmares – A Landay Poem, Ekprastic Challenge, February 1

The world according to RedCat

Michael Dickel ~ Unicorn-Dream


Dreams of kisses, rainbows and magic
Snug in sleep when reality is much more tragic

Fantasies of closeness, touch and hugs
Before dawn the comfy blanket of dark away tugs

Visions of varm love, full trust, free lust
Shattered into isolation, cobwebs and mind dust

Nightmares of a frozen empty tomb
Melt as frost when waking in embrace let sweet lust bloom
